How To Do Your Makeup In 10 Minutes – sounds crazy, right?! Wrong!

Hey guys! My name is Lauren and I am the owner and operator of LA Page Makeup located in Meriden, CT. I offer my clients makeup applications including bridal, date night, lessons, and more, as well as lash lift and tints, facial waxing and eyebrow tinting.

I teamed up with Alexandra Beauregard from The Productivity Zone to create a three part blog series on how to get your makeup on FAST so you can tackle the more important stuff in your day!

How to do your makeup in 10 minutes!

If you know Alex, you know she’s BIG on getting ready in the morning, especially when you work from home – even if that means throwing on two pieces of makeup, sweats, and a ponytail. When Alex expressed how she’s always wanted to teach her fellow awesome female entrepreneurs how to put their faces on in just a few minutes, I was all in! This is my kind of stuff, since I’m constantly getting myself ready in mere minutes on the daily, not to mention having to move quickly from client to client during a real-life wedding morning.

Today’s post is a continuation from the post, “How To Do Your Makeup in 5 Minutes” and the OG post, “How To Do Your Makeup in 2 Minutes”. We’re taking it home by doubling the time to 10 minutes! This will include a few more products and steps while still remaining achievable. Check out the video below to see an in-depth video tutorial explaining the process!




Here’s a list of the items I used in the video, as well as some other awesome products in those categories to make your life a little easier. I know how overwhelming a makeup store can be as a beginner!

How to do your makeup in 10 minutes!

Notice how my skin is super even, eyes are more defined, and face a little warmer than in the previous tutorials. We completed the look with more eyeshadows, bronzer, and a brow pencil this time. Can you say brows on fleek?! This is your go-to-the-office look. This is your brunch-with-the-girls look. This is your conquer anything look! Feel confident and beautiful in your own skin with this look and ready to take on anything!

I hope this helps you feel just a little more productive and comfortable in your own skin!
